Subject: Lovely manuscript
Afraid to download to epub for fear of not capturing images...
this is a lovely, in fact the illustrations are quite beautiful, manuscript. The illustrations could be printed out and framed, they are that iconic, and in color. Too bad it was not published, as it would have captured more of a readership I would think.
